Yesterday the Auckland University goon squad were out in
force dribs and drabs protesting against Hamas..oh….I mean Israel. It did make me wonder though, as one of their chants were “Boycott genocide”. Juliet Moses confronted the rowdy teenagers and tried engage some sensible dialogue with their adult supervisor and enlighten them to a few facts about Hamas, only to be shouted down with petulant behaviour, abuse and more chanting because they didn’t like what she had to say to them. It just goes to show one thing from ‘that side’, that freedom of speech is tolerated, as long as it’s theirs.
Billy Hania the adult representing the rowdy toddlers blurted out a delusional rant which stated that all the killing was a result of the Super Fund and other companies. It has been alleged that an Israeli chemical company that the Superannuation Fund invests in is “killing people” with white phosphorus. The trouble with that is, the IDF haven’t used it since 2009 and it is only used for smokescreens because its use as a weapon is now illegal.
Even David Shearer doesn’t know what’s going on, as is evident in his comment:
Labour defence spokesman David Shearer, who worked for the UN in some of the conflict zones where white phosphorus was allegedly used, this month called for the fund to sell its Israel Chemicals stake.
“We should be divesting from that [shareholding] immediately,” he said.
“New Zealand should not be investing in any type of munitions that can be used in the way Israel is using them at the moment.
“It is absolutely unacceptable and I think most New Zealanders would agree. I don’t believe it is right.
“There are plenty of good investments in the world without having to invest in armaments.” – source
